Having problems with your GE 25 in. Nautilus GSC3400J Free-standing Dishwasher ?

There is soap left at the end of a cycle from the dispenser. It is trailing down the door and standing in a puddle at the bottom of the dishwasher. The soap that is not in the trap door seems to wash away, but not the soap that comes out once the trap door pops for the main wash. Any ideas on how to fix this or what could be causing the problem?


Answers :

Try different detergent types--liquid instead of powder, capsules instead of liquid. Don't put large dishes near the door that might block spray. Check the spray holes in the spray arms for blocking.

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!

Have the Kenmore Limited Edition dishwasher, model # 665.15892100. When dishwasher is running, you can hear the soap container flip open. However, @ end of washer's completion, and main door is opened, the soap is still in the container. Some has leaked out, but the majority is still in the container. Dishes are still dirty, so it appears that either there is no water to disperse the soap, or does the door really open? Any ideas?

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

Our Whirlpool ADP5966 is not washing properly: the dishes do not come out clean and the soap mainly stays in the dispenser although it opens normally. The quick wash cycle is hopeless now and the longer ones still not good. We have cleaned filters, soap dispenser etc but still the soap stays in dispenser often turning into a concrete like block. Thanks

Kude48fxbl - brand new out-of-the-box. When put through a test cycle after installing it, water poured out of the bottom left edge of the door. This was not associated with either the water input or the discharge hose, but rather seemed to come from the interior of the washer and out under the door. The door seemed well latched, and running it with some dishes in the bottom tray (not blocking the soap dispenser) didn't help.

The detegent doesn't completely leave the soap dish. the soap door works appropiately --- but the dishes do not come out clean. We have tried detergent pellet, liquid detegent and the basic cascade detergent....with the same result. There is always most of the detergent still in the soap dish.
